|These are my 'basic tools'|
I use when needle punching.
Very sharp scissors, embroidery needles (not pictured),
floss and floss holder...
|the purpose for fine pointed|
is for the snipping of loops
on 'right side' of work.
The finer the scissors are
the easier to get into small areas within the work.
|Storage is another important factor|
for keeping tools together and safe.
I found this antique slide box
at a charity shop
and knew it would be perfect for my spare needle nibs
and needle threader.
|I like keeping everything I need |
to start and complete
a needle punch project
|Just the needles pictured here|
with of course
a magnifying glass (much needed)
and plastic straw bits
to keep yarn punch tip covered.
|I alway keep a few pieces of cardboard too,|
for backing small/medium project
Cereal boxes work great!
|I first purchase my weavers cloth from a local wool fiber artist.|
She package it in zip locks shown here.
I now purchase by the yard,
but like to store smaller bits in zip locks.
|I like how everything is neatly tucked away in storage box.|
Of course I keep floss, threads, hoops, frames, and fabric
in separate storage boxes.
That will be my next post.
